    it really blows

    The fan blows out plenty of air but it tilts up and down on a thin metal bar so when you turn it on it, it slowly starts to tilt up towards the ceiling so you have to constantly adjust it every few minutes. It gets worse when you turn the fan to a higher speed. This makes a great fan very irritating to use. I'd like to keep a fan in one end of the room and forget it instead of getting up every few minutes.

    This fan moves alot of air, but it is indeed a fan that makes noise. I couldn't really determine if it was quiet or sounded like a regular fan before I bought it. It sounds like a regular fan, but a quieter. I like it because it's all black, is covered by a great warranty, and is very well built. This is a tank of fans, and worth the money.

    When I first opened this I thought I made a mistake because of how small it was. But wow! It works very well and moves a lot of air, perfect for a medium- small size room. Works better than the ceiling fan! It is a little loud on the highest setting but that’s expected with a fan rotating so quickly. You can’t go wrong with this fan! It’s saves a lot of space over a conventional fan!

    Great Small Fan for Sleeping

    I use this fan in my bedroom in Summer to provide good airflow. So far it's been great, and it's not too loud at setting 1 which is what I use it for. Setting 2 and 3 get louder, which is why I use setting 1 for sleeping. I want a fan that will last, and this Vornado is very well built. I don't think you can go wrong if you want good air flow at minimal levels.

    This can might be smal, but it sure puts off some wind. I mainly got it for the noise at night, because I have to sleep with a fan on for the noise. This fan is pretty loud, which is a good thing for me but might not be for someone else. It met and exceeded all of my expectations I had for it.

    I have long been a fan of the Vornado 660 air circulator. Although this smaller fan does not seem quite as high quality as the 660, it is much better than average and was available in white. The fan is fairly quiet on low which is the speed I use most often. I purchased two of these fans in the last six months and am pleased with both.

    Does the job

    I wanted a good fan for my apartment. I got tired of buying oscillating fans and having them break after a short time. This is a good sturdy fan. It is well made and does the job. I don't think it lives up to the amount of air it sends over a set length of space but it is good quality. A solid purchase for sure. I may buy another soon.

    Very good air flow and nice directional capabilities but seems to be loud and not from the blades. The amount of air it moves it is expected to be a little loud but the vibration seems a little excessive. It’s not horrible just something I notice.

    This fan might be small, but it sure puts off some air. I always sleep with a fan on, I use t for the noise and for wind to blow on me. Even with it set on medium, it still puts off a lot of wind. I also love how I can have it on my bedside table and not take up any floor space.

    Bought two of these fans to help cut my electric bill, so far they have done just that. With the recirculation flow, I'm able to keep my air set at 80-85 through the day and it be very comfy in my place and 85-88 at night... And I never changed my thermostat on the hot days either!

    This is the second of these fans we bought. our older son has enjoyed for years and got one for second son's room. They move a lot of air in a compact form. They aren't designed to be quiet, but we actually prefer that as they drown out other movement in house when kids are sleeping.

    Would of given 5 stars, but fan can be on the loud side even when on the lowest setting. That being said the lowest setting still circulates air through the room well and this fan is a beast on it's highest setting. Still a great fan

    This fan works good for small to mid size rooms. l put this fan at one side of the room and point it to the opposite side wall and l can feel the air movement. l am happy with this fan and also probably going to buy the bigger modle next time.

    Powerful Cooling

    Vornado personal fan provides cooling with Three adjustable speeds. The highest speed provides powerful air circulation, but high speed creates a small bit of noise. The lowest speed is quiet and move the air within a small enclosed room or office.

    I am using this fan for a small sized bedroom. It is a little pricy for it's size, but it really creates good air circulation. I stay cool at night in 80 degree weather. It is the best fan I have ever used and has been worth the money.

    I live in a house without central a/c, and window units don't cool as good as you'd like in extreme heat. This Vornado fan keeps the entire room cool all night long, and I get a good night's sleep!

    I have one AC unit in my apartment and this little fan does a fantastic job in pushing around the cool air throughout my space. It's a little loud (have heard the bigger model is much quieter), but nothing too distracting.

    I was skeptical at first how well this fan would work. But it has exceeded my expectations time and time again. It is a very powerful little fan and moves a lot more air than a standing floor model much larger in size
